Building a new frame
|Some remarq about the original Frame: |
This is what a roswell look like when you first buy it. After some pratice, you will rapidly notice that the main frame (for me a big piece of shit) break easily in many places. That's because it was designed for flying indoor. After gluing together the parts, I decided to replace it with something stronger.
Pictures are like thousand words, so if you need more explanation, feel free to contact me…
First Idea : redo the frame in the same material.
My first attempt : using the same material as the original frame ("carton plume").
Second idea : use gfk and add glue in some place to improve the original frame
thrird Idea : do a new one with aluminium tube (instead of CFK, wich is really too expensive)
yeah i am using small rope
it is light and strong, maybe a
The electronic circuit is mounted on top
final look of the roswell
I still have some problem to mount battery in it
Symetric mounting as required by
Do not forget to cut 2 tennistable ball
Total cost :
- Aluminium pipes : 12 FF
- Epoxy glue (90 seconds) : 35 FF
- Kitchen Aerator : 25 FF
4th idea, build a bigger roswell based on the small one.
On order to reuse the computer board, i will use new transistor (same reference as the original, it is only for protecting the board) and dissipator. The circuit board is using too small printed circuit. So I prefer to make an external power circuit.
